For the leftovers

1 + 1/2 Cup of boiled or canned Puy or Beluga lentils

1 garlic clove

1 pinch of chilly flakes

1 tbs Extra Virgin Olive Oil

1 tsp Tamari

1 cup leftover or store-bought hummus

1 Roasted leftover carrot or 1 fresh pepper

1 tsp smoked paprika

2 tsp Suma

Salt to taste

For the Steak

1 Cauliflower head

3 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil

2 tbsp Harissa

2 tbsp Tamari

1 generous pinch of salt

1 tsp oregano

1 tsp smoked paprika

2 tsp smoked dehydrated garlic

Fresh parsley for garnish


  • Turn the oven to a 200°C fan and prepare a large oven dish or oven shelf with baking paper.
  • Wash and trim the cauliflower, carve the stem's hardest end, and cut out the large, more central part in 4 slices (¾-inch thick). Save separately the florets that are too small or falling apart.
  • Mix all the condiments for the steak in a jar, and if necessary, add a spoon of water to make it thinner and spreadable.
  • Gently massage the steaks with the mix, drizzle with more oil and leave them to rest in the oven dish while the oven it gets hot.
  • When ready, bake for 20 minutes until nicely roasted with golden brown edges.
  • While baking, blend the hummus with the roasted carrots/fresh peppers, Suma and smoked paprika. Adjust the salt.
  • Heat the oil, tamari, garlic, and chilly flakes in a large pan. When hot, add the lentils. Stir fry on a high medium flame for 5 minutes, stirring.
  • Arrange the hummus and the lentils on the plate and top with the cauliflower steak. Garnish with fresh parsley and more Suma if you like.
  • Serves 2 as the main or 4 as a starter.

*The florets falling out and the cauliflower's smallest parts can be stewed using the same range of condiments in this steak recipe.

**To speed up the roasting, you can lightly steam the steaks, ensuring they don't overcook or fall apart.
